I can hardly believe it, but I am headed to the 2012 Book Expo of America in New York City today! I have long wanted to go and this year the stars were all in alignment for me. If you’re reading this Sunday after 10am EST, I’ll be on a train headed toward Penn Station. Not only will this be my first BEA, it will be my first trip to New York City, too. I’m beyond excited.
This January will mark six years of book blogging for me and I think it’s about time I meet some of the wonderful bloggers, publishers, publicists, and other industry professionals I’ve been in contact with online for so long.
I will be attending the BEA Bloggers Conference on Monday and have been given the honor of moderating the Creating Community & Driving Engagement session on Monday afternoon. If you happen to be there, please stop by and say hello.
The 2012 Audie Awards ceremony will be held on Tuesday. I won’t be in attendance, but I’ll be somewhere in the city cheering on all of the Armchair Audies nominees as well as a few of the other nominees I’ve listened to and enjoyed. If you’d like to play along with me, you can download a copy of the ballot we developed. It’s the perfect way to celebrate June is Audiobook Month.
I will do my best to update you on all that is going on, but I have no idea when I’ll have decent blogging time. You might end up with quite a few mini posts along the way.
Have a wonderful first week of June!
